We present the first record of Scinax nebulosus for the State of Sergipe, in the Atlantic Forest, Brazil. Scinax nebulosus is a small hylid which inhabits the Amazon and Atlantic Forest. Its main microhabitat is temporary water bodies in tropical forests. This species can be recognized by the presence of many scattered glandules on the dorsal surface, especially on the head, upper eyelids and margins of the members. Some taxonomic studies and vocals records suggest careful evaluation of the taxonomic status of S. nebulosus along its geographical distribution.
